i made door hangers for my Dad in assisted living.  I wish i knew where they are now.  He came up with the ideas...and they were so funny.

I'm just one kitty shy of being a crazy cat lady. I foster orphan kitties for a rescue organization. I kept all four of my kitties the first time I fostered. I already had 3. I make tiny kittie blankie a with Minky swirl fabric for each kitty to take home. Next kitten season I'm sure I'll be a card carrying crazy cat lady.

I am happy to see you accepted my friend request! We can never have too many friends, right?

Looks like the "friending" worked, but when I try to compose, it is saying I have no friends.  Anyway, I have lots of flower patterns I could adapt to the Got Water theme.  Thank you for the offer.  There is another row by row with watering can and flowers...may wilt the one the can can't reach.

Hello Wilma,

Thanks so much for the you tube site,  now I'm going to be in trouble making boxes.  I also have some pre-quilted fabric I'd like to get rid of so guess where it's going?  Those boxes I think will make good thread catchers by our chairs where we hand sew, will make as quick Xmas gifts foe my quilting friends.  Again thanks,   Judi
